Today you will visit Santa Fé, one of the oldest islands of the archipelago. For this, you will be picked up at your hotel at 07:15 for the shared transfer to the port. By boat you will go from Puerto Ayora to the island Santa Fé in about 2 hours. The landing takes place on a sandy beach, which is home to sea lions. During the 2-hour hike you will get to know the island and its inhabitants better. Santa Fé is characterized by dry landscapes with opuntias up to 10 meters high. The endemic Galapagos land iguanas feed on the fruits. The animals are very skilful, rolling the spiny fruits with their paws on the ground until the last sting has fallen off for consumption. This lizard, which is only found on Galápagos, has an impressive head crest. Please consider the stony ground when choosing your shoes in the morning and think about bathing clothes for the snorkel stop. In the afternoon return to Puerto Ayora (approx. 3 hours by boat).
Note: Depending on availability on the excursion boats, the day trip to Santa Fé can also be done in another form, without island hiking. Daily description:
